I read thru the available documentation of VMailer....it's the first set
of MTA docs that didn't give me a headache :-).
Seriously, it looks pretty clean....if the code looks anything as good as
the docs it ought to be very good.
I'm not exactly a mail security guru but they do seem to have seperated
the functions of the mailer well. Why don't you real guru's take a look
and report back. For my money it's the one.....when it's available....and
that is the big gotcha....I can't find out when it's to be release...next
month?, next year?
The license looks pretty good too.....just protects IBM from lawsuits and
gives IBM bragging rights and that's about it, otherwise it appears to me
to be private-use and commercial-use free. I don't know if it's DFSG
free.....could someone that knows more comment? Here is the URL and
